 Austin Lee McQuillan is 18 years old, and was born on August 1st, 1998, in Salina, Kansas. Austin is the son of Toby and Heavenly McQuillan and is brother to Shiann, Bailey, Desirae, and Mariah McQuillan. Austin’s favorite movie is Hacksaw Ridge and the sport he enjoys to play the most is football. Austin likes to listen to the song "Backroad Song", by Granger Smith and he likes to eat pizza.

Austin’s plans for next year are to go to Beloit, Kansas to work in the oil field. His favorite memory at school is when Mr. Fox came to watch a football game with his son, Joseph and Mr. Fox was pulling Joseph in his cart. His favorite memory of his senior year is winning the State title in football because it was the highlight of the season for the team. Austin’s said his most embarrassing moment was, “Dancing in football and shaking my butt at the camera!”

Austin’s favorite subject in school is the Woods class because he likes to use his hands to work on projects. His favorite teacher is Mr. Bolen, the shop teacher. Austin’s favorite hobby is to go mud racing, “I like to mud race because it is a thrill to drive in the mud!” Austin’s advice to underclassmen: “Don’t complain, and don’t be annoying.”

In ten years, Austin sees himself working and making money. One thing Austin would take away from Weskan to college, if possible, is the teachers because they help him out a lot.

Austin’s dad, Toby, inspires him the most. “I want to work and do things like him,” said Austin. Austin will miss his friends the most because they are people he knows and talks to every day.

We would like to wish Austin good luck and nothing but the best in the future!
